Reactive Dog Consultation
Does your dog "lose it" when he or she sees other dogs?
Do you have to wait outside when you take your dog to the vet?
Is it difficult or embarrassing just to go for a walk around the neighborhood?
You have a reactive dog.
Reactivity is a very common issue here in the suburbs, especially in this post-covid world. Happy Dog Training will help your best friend actually become relaxed and confident around other dogs...without the use of choke chains, prong collars or shock collars.
Not all dogs are destined to become dog park regulars (just like not all people enjoy group hugs!), but we can help make the simple things in life easier and calmer for you and your dog.
During your Reactive Dog Consultation, we will:
Assess your dog's temperament and sociability
Assess your dog's level of reactivity and triggers
Determine if reactivity is due to fear or frustration
Teach you to read dog body language to prevent them from "blowing up" BEFORE it happens
Assess threshold distance
Lifestyle changes to reduce dog’s arousal level
Basic management for living/working with a reactive dog
Please read this excellent blog post about reactivity!
